Development, Applications and Early Experience

Abstract

These studies suggest that there are several potential advantages to use of the AccuTouch simulators, including (1) improvement of the endoscopic training of trainees before patient contact, (2) possible evaluation for procedural competency, and (3) possible cost savings, increasing the productivity of faculty while the trainees are developing competency using the trainers. Other potential advantages might include the training of endoscopists in new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and even new devices before patient contact. With continued improvement in software and hardware, endoscopic simulators will become an integral part of endoscopic training programs.
